A very long tradition
The charter company Star Voyage Antilles has been chartering boats on the island of Martinique in the Caribbean since 1983! This means that it has not only a rich history but above all a lot of experience behind it. So if you are looking for an expert in the Lesser Antilles, a strip of islands in the eastern Caribbean Sea, then use their services. They know the area like no other, they have a grasp of the local realities and processes required to navigate the region.
Absolute relaxation with a captain and hostess
Over its many years of existence, Star Voyage Antilles has built up a network of partners and service providers. They offer the supply of an experienced captain and hostess on board their ships. If you've never sailed in this exotic region, a skipper is definitely recommended. He or she will show you hidden spots, guide you to selected establishments and advise you where to anchor and where not to. In addition, he or she will take care of the formalities of customs and paperwork once you arrive on one of the islands around Martinique. For example, if you would like to visit the island state of Grenada.
The job of the hostess includes, besides helping with the ropes and mooring the boat, buying groceries, cooking and related activities such as cleaning the boat during the cruise. This way you can relax to the fullest and not worry about any unpopular duties.
Two hulls are more than one
Crossing the Atlantic
A unique service offered by Star Voyage Antilles is the Atlantic crossing. The cruise lasts from 6 to 7 weeks, depending on the strength and direction of the wind. The start of the cruise is always from early October to early November. The port of departure is La Rochelle, France, but it is also possible to arrange a start from Portugal, the Canary Islands or Cape Verde. The charter company can recommend an experienced skipper who has sailed this way several times. This cruise is for anyone who wants to experience a real maritime adventure, to try to step out of their comfort zone and experience the ocean.
If you're going on a Caribbean cruise, be sure to pack your snorkel, fins and mask. The underwater life here is fascinating and varied even at shallow depths, so you can easily enjoy it without scuba gear. The Caribbean coral reefs are full of colourful fish and animals, and you can spot manta rays, sea turtles and various species of sharks. Just pick a spot with clear shallow water, anchor and go exploring. Find out exactly who you might meet on your trip in the article Snorkelling and sailing: what lives on the Caribbean's coral reefs?
